It's a farm quilt right? When it's nearly finished, it would seem appropriate to start the harvest. And when it's all finished, the harvest will be in, right? It makes me think of that old church hymn, "Bringing in the Sheaves." So, yeah. I'm so old I've actually sung that song in church. It might even have been the day it was written, or certainly when it was still listed in the Top Ten.
So the quilting is finished. YAHOO!! I can't even tell you how much I dreaded this project. Now that it's finished, I'm wondering why I thought it would be so awful. Of course, my little quilting cat was by my side throughout, and I'm sure that made it easier. Certainly it made it slower.
